Many people automatically picture sand, beaches, and sun when you say the word “Hawaii.” While there’s plenty of that, our Big Island luxury real estate brokers know there are countless benefits of living on the state’s biggest island – and that many generations are seeking a healthier, happier way of life. Here’s what you need to know about our piece of paradise.
The air is SO clean. While you may not know it, air quality among all the various cities is ranked between 1 and 100, with 100 being absolutely pure. Numbers of 90 and above are a good indication of clean, quality air. The air quality in Hilo is 93, impressive for those who are concerned about poor air quality and its impact on the environment and their bodies. Breathe in – you’ll feel the difference.
The evenings are great for stargazing. What a peaceful, relaxing feeling when you can actually see countless stars as you gaze into the night sky! This is because there’s less light pollution than what you find in big cities in the U.S. Considering it’s closer to the equator, you’ll notice the sky seems much more magnificent than it did before.
All of the wonderful fruits and vegetables you can grow in your own backyard. Talk about fresh! From pomegranate, mangosteen, red dragon fruit, and watermelon to asparagus, coffee, blackberries, cacao, avocados and so much more, the land on the big island are rich and fertile. Locally sourced foods, important for many people today.
The Big Island is where you can work from your lanai or “tropical veranda” or enjoy relaxing while experiencing amazing views of the coastline, ocean, mountains, or lush tropical landscape depending on where you live. It’s all about the outdoors, where residents spend most of their time whether hiking, strolling along the beach, working in their gardens, or even enjoying a weekend just fishing and relaxing after pitching a tent on the beach. Yoga? Enjoy it near the ocean in a yurt. Golf anyone? The best courses and opportunities you’ll find.
It’s a totally different lifestyle in a diverse culture we think you’ll find refreshing and invigorating.
